Contestents of Survivor: Palau looking for something a bit more?
So I picked up the TV Guide from our paper today, and I saw Romber on the front page (small picture, but still there), so I go to look for the article about them, assuming it was about TAR for a moment, but nope, it was about the contestants for Survivor 10. Apparently, contestants are using Survivor not only to win big money, but as a dating service it seems. Because I can't find the article online, I'm going to take a few quotes out of it.
Huh. So, not only are reality TV romances popping up, but the new fad is to do cross-overs? I'm not buying.

Maybe TV Guide is blowing this a little over the top, but still, I don't want Survivor to be turned into a dating show where in the end you get a million dollars.
